Letter from the President

Dear Members:

As we make our way through the summer, the New York City Chapter of IFMA is pleased to announce an enlivening and engaging schedule of programming for the months to come. Make sure to stay up-to-date by downloading our mobile app and checking our website for new events, to register for upcoming programs and connect with fellow Chapter members.

We are looking forward to our highly anticipated fundraiser for the IFMA Foundation at the Steelcase showroom on Thursday, August 14, 2014.   We hope you can join us in supporting the Foundation which works to support Facility Management higher education, students studying the field and research critical to the profession.

Be sure to mark your calendar for the Annual Golf Outing set for Monday, October 6, 2014.  This year we are adding an instructional course option as well as the opportunity to golf, network and dine with former New York Jets and Giants players.  The Golf Committee has been working hard to bring some new elements to the Outing - it is an event you won’t want to miss. 

I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the ongoing efforts of our dedicated and talented members who maintain IFMA New York City Chapter’s reputation as the premier organization for Facility Managers in the New York Metropolitan Area.

Gary Anzalone
